A collection of personal notes and poetry written by rock 'n' roll legend Elvis Presley is set to go under the hammer.

The handwritten messages include a poem in which the Elvis describes smashing a robin perched on his windowsill, reports contactmusic.com.

It reads, "He sang his sweet song so sweetly and paused for a moments lull/ I gently raised the window and crushed his f­**king skull."

Presley's copy of Kahlil Gibran's book The Prophet will also go under the hammer at the Omega Auctions sale in Stockport, England, March 9.
